CEO Update
Olean Area Young Professionals Award
I’m proud to report our Director of Planning and Development, Alicia Broadbent, earned a special recognition at the Olean Area Young Professionals (OAYP) annual awards ceremony Wednesday night. Alicia won the Most Valuable Young Professional award from the organization, and our entire staff was on hand at the newly renovated Old Library to celebrate the occasion. Her honor came alongside five other awards that evening, which were selected among the brightest young professionals from area organizations and businesses for their great work and community volunteerism.

Alicia has worked here since 2014. In that time, it’s been a privilege to watch her grow as a professional and a person. I’d like to thank OAYP and the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce (GOACC) for recognizing the great young talent this area has to offer.
CRCF Nonprofit Networking Day
Our prevention coordinator, Jordan Taylor, and grant writer, Kelsey Boudin, attended the Nonprofit Networking Day hosted last Friday by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation (CRCF). The seventh-annual event, held again at St. Bonaventure University, allowed hundreds of nonprofit professionals to network, meet funders and participate in breakout sessions. Jordan and Kelsey reported back to me on their positive experiences.
Jordan attended two sessions on fundraising readiness and engaging younger generations. Kelsey attended two sessions on storytelling with a purpose and grant application tips from funders. They both truly enjoyed the keynote session from David O. Egner, President & CEO of the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation. I’d like to thank Karen Buchheit and her CRCF team for again putting on this fantastic event. It’s always a valuable opportunity for organizations like ours to reconnect and refresh our skills.
Houghton EMS Open House
Alicia and I attended the annual Houghton EMS Open House last Friday at the Houghton Volunteer Fire Department/Ambulance Service. We were happy to meet face-to-face with so many of our EMS providers in Allegany County. It also provided a wonderful opportunity to speak with local Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinators (PECCs) at these agencies, as well as to interact with community members in attendance. 
I’d like to thank Houghton EMS Ambulance Capt. Mae Stadelmaier for her ongoing commitment to the event and her agency. Events like this allow emergency personnel to get to know the individuals they serve -- and vice versa. That connection is vital in our rural communities.
